Kennedy proves critics wrong with title win

COLUMN: NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Consider Andy Kennedy’s existence justified.

      If OM lands the best on signing day, expect worst from critics

      COLUMN: There’s any number of things for a Rebels sports fan to be excited about at the moment: A basketball team that’s cracked the Top 25 for the first time in almost three years and looks like it will end an 11-year NCAA Tournament drought, baseball season (and warm weather) just around the corner and a Rebel football signing class that looks to rival any in school history.

        Grenada’s Bledsoe paying attention to Rebels’ class

        COLUMN: Ole Miss’ success on the recruiting trail isn’t exclusively tracked by fans. Current verbal commitments for the 2013 football recruiting class are keeping up with what coach Hugh Freeze and his staff are achieving in the days leading up to National Signing Day on Feb. 6, 2013.

        One of those commits that is interested in how the rest of the class shakes out is Grenada athlete Trey Bledsoe (6-foot-2, 185 pounds). Bledsoe chose to play for the Rebels well before the 2012 season started, before Freeze’s offense started to make stars out of Bo Wallace — this year’s Conerly Trophy Award winner — and wide receiver Donte Moncrief, Wallace’s main target this season.

              Hugh Freeze as SEC Coach of the Year is not so unbelievable

              COLUMN: It’s a splendid month of incredulity around Oxford. Football fans embittered by Houston Nutt’s implosion are still rational enough to know how irrational they’re sounding: Are we really talking about bowl eligibility for the Ole Miss Rebels? (more…) (November 1, 2012, Page 9)

                  COLUMN: The bathrooms on the press box level of Vaught-Hemingway Stadium weren’t functional at halftime of Saturday’s Ole Miss football game against Texas A&M, so I rode the elevator down to the ground floor to use the facilities with 60,000-odd folks braving the unseasonably cold and unfortunately wet night.

                    Now it gets interesting: Texas A&M a real measure of the new OM

                    COLUMN: At 3-2 through five games, everything’s gone according to the script for Ole Miss, no matter what script you’re working from. Pundits and fans who predicted results as varied as 3-8 to 7-5 had the Rebels losing to national powers Texas and Alabama, and taking care of business against inferior non-conference competition in Central Arkansas, UTEP and Tulane.
